Solar Energy

Change is the only constant in solar energy development. Despite the seemingly ever-present market uncertainties, policy changes, and equipment delays, the solar industry has an incredible success story of resiliency and innovation. Over the past 15 years, Westwood has faced these challenges head-on as we’ve advanced the development and deployment of more than 110 GW of utility-scale, distributed generation, and commercial solar across the US. We’ve seen it all, and we’re here to provide your team with the knowledge, experience, and flexibility needed to make your project a success. 

Full-Service

Whether your solar energy project is 1 MW, 1 GW, a hybrid with wind energy, energy storage, or green hydrogen – we provide in-house expertise you can trust. We understand the industry, from community solar gardens to the largest utility-scale projects ever built. With increased uncertainty, you need a partner who is all in. Let our experience be your guide. 

 

Agile by Nature

Speed and flexibility are critical to your project’s success. At the same time, projects are more complex and often require nuanced solutions, especially when working with regulators and other authorities. We understand what is critical to your project, and when. This allows us to provide the most effective deliverable to move things forward, without sacrificing future flexibility.  

One Trusted Partner

From our first solar energy project in 2008, we’ve grown with the industry to become one of the most trusted brands in project siting, permitting, engineering, and land surveying. Our team will keep your goals in mind as they guide your project through all phases of development. Have confidence in one point of contact as we focus on efficient, cost-effective paths forward.
